, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t

's not a state that he must win, but if he does the things that make sense, wins indiana, north carolina, florida and virginia, then the next state has to be ohio or he has to replace ohio. he can do that with pennsylvania, he can do it with wisconsin, plus colorado, he can do it with wisconsin plus new hampshire. so ohio has been -- has been called the big deal for months and months because it is the big deal. >> do i sense that you feel pretty confident about florida? >> i do. i do feel good about florida. >> what makes you feel good about florida? >> i think romney is going to do well on the i-4 corridor but will keep it close enough in the eastern time zone that when the votes come in from the central time zone, northwest florida, for hundreds of thousands of people vote, they will roll up a big margin for romney and it will overcome whatever small margin, if any, obama gets out of the eastern half the state. >> sounded a little to me, i'm playing psychologist here, probably bad thing to do, that your knees are knocking a little bit over virginia. and i would dare say, if governor romney does

legion and get to 270 electoral votes? give mitt romney florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado. his shortest path is to win those states. he would win a majority of the nine swing states and that gets him to 275, 263 for barack obama. he also needs for that scenario to win the state of ohio. tyler mentioned the cleveland airport today. what -- now, let's go back to this map again, put the swing states again in yellow and say, what is barack obama's shortest path? he just needs to win three of the nine swing states, those three, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, ohio, the state we have just been talking about and also nevada, big harry reid's home state, the senate leader, big union vote, big hispanic vote there. if he gets those three things, barack obama gets to 271 electoral votes and wins, tyler. >> but not any three of those nine states? >> specifically those three. >> specifically those three. say it again, ohio, nevada -- >> ohio, wisconsin, nevada. if barack obama gets those three, can win every other swing state -- >> do the polls tell us that he is ahead in those three? >>

, virginia, florida, colorado, too close to call. the senate, mostly breaking as expe expected, but the democrats did pick up three new seats. republicans projected to hold the house as well. >> all right. let's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more color on what we're seeing as the most recent poll closings. over to you, john. >> we're almost completely closing the map of coloring in the map of all the states we knew in advance where they were going to faull. the only state where polls have not closed yet is the state of alaska. we're very confident mitt romney is going to win that based on polls before the election. so we're really waiting for those seven battleground states that haven't been filled in yet. again, to reiterate, as we've talked about before, if president obama wins the state of florida this race is over. he's going to be re-elected for a second term. but if mitt romney wins it, he's got to also win north carolina, he's got to win virginia, where it's very close, and he's got to win the state of ohio, which is really a big one hanging out

decisive. florida remains a toss-up. clearly not going to make a difference to the overall outcome. 270, that was the number to reesm we knew once we started to get the results from ohio, that it was going in barack obama's way decisively. yes, 303 to barack obama 206 to mitt romney. >> but the race for the white house wasn't the only major contest as control of congress was also up for grabs. the democrats held on to the senate picking up two additional seats in massachusetts, where elizabeth warren beat the incumbent scott brown. in indiana, congressman joe donnelly beat the controversial richard mourdock. congress remains divides republicans maintain their control over the house of representatives. romney's running mate paul ryan won his re-election campaign for his house seat. >> joining us for more analysis is ron freeman. ron, good morning. >> good morning, kelly. >> ron, what's your initial reaction here to the outcome? what's the biggest impact this is going to have on policy? >> i think the biggest impact it will have on policy is we have a president we know well. we know what

and maybe florida depends on the poll. i urge everyone to go out and vote in new jersey. very difficult. largest polling place in our town closed. no power. people have to recognize that the adversity of a lot of people trying to vote today shows you that democracy is trying to be at work. not as easy as you thought. >> i have always said voting is messy. we do it better than just about anybody else. >> north korea has the 99%. everybody seems to turn out. >> regardless of whether the lights or off or not. >> another call today from deutsche bank saying that there's a rally if obama wins and a rally if romney wins going into year end. depends if you look at 1450 or 1500. >> some have said there's a bond market rally for one and stock market rally for other. bond market for obama. easy money so to speak continuing. one of the key questions people come back to is it possible if romney wins and replace him prior to that in some fashion. what we can expect. we'll sit here tomorrow and know who the president is. you talk about uncertainty. that would be a blow if we sit here tomorrow and don

-47. look at the state of florida. one that mitt romney is counting on as a lynchpin of the base. 29 electoral votes. president obama up among likely voters 49-47. in ohio, the state most look at as the potential tipping point. president obama has a six-point lead. he's gone hard on the auto bailout and hitting mitt romney. that's a point of contention. because ohio has been such a tough nut for the romney campaign to crack, that's a reason they are making a late play into pennsylvania. it depends on turnout organization, especially the composition of the electorate. what portion of white voters versus hispanics. definitely a lower level of intensity and young people. barack obama dominates among young people. mitt romney among seniors who are more motivated to vote. how much will that carry the day? we'll find out tomorrow. >> if you're looking for an early tell tomorrow, if you could only look at one state early on, virginia. if it's decisive either way does that suggest the rest of the night collapses in that direction? >> almost in any of the battleground states other than ohio w

read over the weekend, if romney doesn't win florida, it's almost impossible he can win the presidency almost by adding in any other combination of states. but there's likely to be gridlock in congress on again for another at least two years, possibly four years. if that's the case, either romney or obama will find their ability quite circumscribed. but there are key areas where either administration would follow fairly similar policies and they are related to expiration for oil and gas and production of oil and gas. it's forgotten now that a couple of months before the gulf of mexico disaster, the bp disaster in 2010, obama had opened up substantial areas off the atlantic coast of the u.s. more region ofs of the gulf of mexico and i think the west coast, as well, to exploration efforts. in other words, the obama administration was of the gulf and i think the west coast, as well, to exploration efforts. in other words, the obama administration was committed to increases production to help towards the long term goal of redur reducing energy import independence. that's a sentiment that r
